Statement of interest: I am a wildlife ecologist whose program focuses on wildlife management with a particular interest in human-wildlife conflict. As human populations expand and land-use patterns change, concomitant changes in wildlife populations and associated distributional patterns are expected as well. The development of effective strategies and management tools will be needed to address human-wildlife conflict situations that will arise from these changes. No single solution is effective or practical for every situation. In fact, the exact opposite is true; most situations are different and require a multitude of management options to effectively reduce conflict situations. As such, my program focuses on a diverse set of strategies and tools for helping to resolve human-wildlife conflict. Taxonomically, I focus primarily on mammalian species, but I occasionally have the opportunity to work on avian management projects as well. Additional details on my program and lab can be found throughout this website.
